Extinction-level Event – Will It Happen Soon


There is news that is probably going to make you bit anxious and could cause some of you to have nightmares.  What is that you ask?  A NASA scientist says that our planet is about due for what is referred to as a “extinction-level” event – one that there is no way to stop


Dr. Joseph Nuth of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center on Monday rang the alarm on just something like this happening New York Magazine reports.  The comet that scientist believe spelled disaster for the dinosaurs hit 65 million years ago, and Nuth said the gigantic asteroids and comets that might be able to wipe out civilization usually strike “50 to 60 million years apart,” making such an event overdue.


Back in 2014, scientists first found a large comet heading towards Mars only 22 months before it came dangerously close to hitting the planet.   That was not enough time to actually do anything, Nuth states, proof that “the biggest problem, basically is there’s not a hell of a lot we can do about it at the moment”. 


In order to prevent an event that is catastrophic, Nuth has suggested that NASA create a rocket that can go into storage somewhere, ready to be use of such a huge comet is found coming our way.  “It could mitigate the possibility of a sneaky asteroid coming in from a place that’s hard to observe, like from the sun, “Nuth said. 


Now the question needs to be asked, has this scientist just seen too many movies about “extinction-level” events or is he really serious?  Only time will tell.
